1. Define: Browser

1.1. a software program that allows the user to find and read encoded documents in a form suitable for display, esp. such a program for use on the World Wide Web

2. Opera

2.1. Pros:

2.1.1. 1 At 10MB, Opera is still the smallest browser to download.

2.1.2. 2 a "turbo" setting can boost download speed by compressing data and image traffic on Opera's proxy servers and then delivering compressed files to your browser

2.2. Cons:

2.2.1. 1 The browser has add-ons, but not a lot of them. What's available is often not very useful and many add-ons perform the same tasks

2.2.2. 2 has never really caught on anywhere and in the US, it's almost unheard of.

3. Google Chrome

3.1. Pros:

3.1.1. 1

3.1.2. fastest-loading browser available

3.1.3. 2 Extensions, bookmark synchronization, enhanced developer tools, improved HTML5 support, performance improvements, full ACID3 pass, HTTP byte range support, increased security, and experimental new anti-reflected-XSS feature called "XSS Auditor".[34]

3.2. Cons:

3.2.1. 1 Is not supported on all Operating Systems

3.2.2. 2 have to enter complete usernames/email IDs, address info, etc. every time and every place.

4. Apple Safari

4.1. Pros:

4.1.1. 1 Dragging of tabs into new windows

4.1.2. 2 Import of bookmarks

4.2. Cons:

4.2.1. 1

4.2.2. No setting for showing tabs when only one is open

4.2.3. 2 Dragging bookmarks into new tabs deletes them

5. Mozilla Firefox

5.1. Pros:

5.1.1. 1

5.1.2. huge number of add-ons that are available. The add-ons can improve security, modify the browser's look and feel, add blogging and commenting abilities, assist website developers with code testing tools, help with shopping, streamline downloads, and more.

5.1.3. 2

5.2. Cons:

5.2.1. 1 Firefox® takes a lot of memory to run

5.2.2. 2 Some websites do not show properly in Firefox®, and require you to view them with IE. This includes pages with ActiveX and VBScript, both of which are not supported by Firefox®.

6. Explorer9

6.1. Pros:

6.1.1. 1

6.1.2. Expect a solid bump in performance for everything from basic Web browsing to Web-based office collaborative tools. For example, updating a Google Doc shared by several writers was clearly quicker in my testing with Explorer 9.

6.1.3. 2 And third-party web browser plug-ins like the Norton Security Tool bar and Yahoo search bars should run much faster -- and crash less often.

6.2. Cons:

6.2.1. 1 No improvement in editing bookmarks

6.2.2. 2 Crowded user interface

7. Explorer8

7.1. Cons:

7.1.1. 1 IE8 does not work very well with CSS, HTML 4, and XHTML. Firefox and Google browsers do very well in these, and this is a distinct disadvantage for IE8 users.

7.1.2. 2 Internet Explorer 8 is the first version of the browser to pass the Acid2 test. However, the browser scores only 20/100 on the Acid3 Test

8. Sources

8.1. All sources must be from October/Nov 2010; use this search: http://bit.ly/cwWsuW ; minimum 5 sources, collaborative effort
